Redcliffe intersections safety works

We are currently undertaking safety upgrade works at 5 busy Redcliffe intersections.

Oxley Avenue and Anzac Avenue experiences high traffic volumes, with more than 11,000 vehicle movements per day and servicing local residential and commercial areas. Motorists can experience difficulties judging safe gaps to turn right across multi-lane, median divided roads.

Anzac Avenue and Silvyn Street intersection

Funding of $532,000 has been allocated to provide safety improvements with the aim to reduce crashes between cars turning right from Silvyn Street with eastbound vehicles on Anzac Avenue.

We will remove the right-turn from Silvyn Street to Anzac Avenue. A U-turn will also be provided at the nearby signalised Anzac Avenue and Oxley Avenue intersection to enable drivers leaving Silvyn Street to travel west on Anzac Avenue.

Detailed design is now complete. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2021, weather and construction scheduling permitting.

Funding of $516,000 has been allocated to provide safety improvements at the 4-way intersection of Oxley Avenue with Portwood Street and Manley Street.

A U-turn will be provided at the nearby traffic signals at the Anzac Avenue and Oxley Avenue intersection, and traffic can use the adjacent road network.
